Expo 2020: What can you expect?
Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.
Ever since the BIE, Bureau International des Expositions in Paris awarded Dubai to host the Expo2020 in 2013, there has been a constant buzz surrounding what is to come. People’s minds enrage with curiosity as time passes and the date of October 20th 2020 comes nearer. With the Expo only about a year ahead, there have been several advancements made within the site and the concept at the same time. It is only natural for residents and visitors to grow more curious and attracted towards a unique venture that promises to astonish the world in 2020.
The siteThe Expo site is located in an area known as Dubai South, close to Al Maktoum International Airport. The site covers 4.38 sq km and has four main entrances. As of now, 2019, there is about 40,000 workers on-site daily to ensure that the project keeps up with its tight schedule, making sure everything is completed within its time.
Free bus tours are currently transporting visitors around the 4.38 square-kilometre site as it nears its completion, throughout the summer. People in the UAE have the golden opportunity to have a hands-on visit to the beautifully structured pavillions before anyone else! The tours take place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and will run until August 31st.
The eventMost people have been quite curious about the event itself. What goes on in an Expo seems to be a mysterious aspect to those who haven’t ever witnessed one in the past. Several different countries will be participating within the Expo, showcasing innovations and ideas revolving around sustainability mobility and opportunity.
The hope is to stimulate the development of a knowledge economy here in Dubai. The Expo site is built in a way so that it doesn’t only attract people during the Expo2020 period but becomes one of the landmark tourist attractions of Dubai even after the event. It is expected that we are to welcome 190 participating countries in the region and millions of people across the globe. The theme would inspire innovators to create a better, peaceful world with more interactions, partnerships, socialising and solutions over the six months and beyond.
The sub-themes of the event better help us to understand the essence of the event.
- Mobility would allow innovators to create smarter and better connections.
- Sustainability would inspire them to create balance within the world around us.
- Opportunity would unlock the potential for several new ideas.
What will this do for Dubai? Once the site is fully developed, it is expected to be home to 1 million residents on average, while accommodating 500,000 jobs. The youth are said to be an integral part of the mega-event since they would be able to avail several opportunities through the Expo. They will also be able to contribute towards a more significant change in the region and retrospect, a difference in the world.
It is a celebration of culture, collaboration and innovation. An anticipated amount of 25 million visitors in Dubai during the Expo 2020 is already increasing the economy charts of Dubai.
According to the National, the public has been enthusiastic about the Expo. In a March 2019 survey, Dubai residents are confident Expo 2020 will deliver a positive impact on the economy, society and culture. Since it is the first event of its kind in the region, the aim is to leave a meaningful and lasting legacy. Not only for the world to witness, but for the residents to stand tall and be proud of as well.
